Yesterday, Ari turned two, or as he says it “Tee-ou!” Wil and I asked him what he would like to do for his birthday many times. He would always reply with:
“Cow!” or “Baa!” or some kind of animal.
I wrote a post, a little while ago, about my visit to The Fosterfields Living Historical Farm in New Jersey. My friend Judy read it, and recommended the Queens County Farm Museum as another great place for kids to see and interact with animals. This farm is free to the public!
Since Ari was intent on seeing animals for his birthday, we decided to check this place out! Grandma, Grandpa, Wil, Ari and I piled into the Fadermobile and off we went.
The Farm is located in Floral Park, NY which is about a half an hour drive from our place.
It’s called a “museum” because it is a historical farm which has been preserved since 1677.
We had a lot of fun. Ari spent most of his time feeding the goats. The gift shop sells little buckets of alfalfa to feed to the sheep and goats.
In addition to goats, there are also pigs, cows, geese and chickens to see!
When we entered the farm, a rooster walked right in front of us!
If you live in New York City, and you want to see farm animals, I highly recommend visiting the Queens County Farm Museum.
